It was great to meet you at lunch today. Your beetle back home is very nice. I can see now why you miss it so much. At least the company you work for was nice enough to buy one for you while you are hehe. Do you happen to have any specs on what modifications you have made to it?
I love the way a NB looks with a wing on it! I know you have to miss the autobahn! I was stationed in Germany from the early to mid 90's and I still miss it! I didn't read where you are now, but with a nice modified NB at home, and no autobahn to drive, you have to be very homesick. That is unless you're getting enough money to do even more modifications to your car when you get back home.
Beetlefun, I have an uncle that lives in Portland. I've never been there to see him though. Anyway, I know what you mean about missing the autobahn. Back then I had a Fox and could only get into triple digit speeds going down hill. I'm not trying to make you anymore homesick, so I'll zip it. Love your car! It's probably the first red car that's not a Ferarri or Lambo that I've drooled over. Enjoy your stay here!
Just baught my first car. 2000vw beetle. Manual. 140k miles on it . Love it so far had some repairs to stop it from over heating but no check engine lights or anything is on. Runs well now. Learning how to drive a manual is scary but fun feels like I'm actually learning how to drive for real...

We're working on building a Baja Bug to take to the Detroit Gambler 500 in May. Since we've utilized this forum for some research purposes, I figured I would share some information and photos from our build.
We utilized the Stage 3 Lift Kit from VWLiftKits.com. It includes better springs...
